JFK-Cairo. Not a horrible flight but the restrooms were not cleaned in 10 hrs. The cabin was hot and the seat didn't have the air adjustment option. Flight crew seemed lazy and unfriendly. Never came around with water, I had to ask, no rubbish collection.

London Heathrow to Baghdad, with a 4 hour layover in Cairo. I was surprised by the quality, I was expecting terrible service, and an out of date plane, however I had an good check-in experience and the flight itself, on one of Egyptair's newer Boeing 777-300 planes was excellent. While IFE did not have the range of programs that some airlines offer, it offered far more of a range than some. The food was good enough, service was easily available and the cabin crew polite and helpful. The only drawback was no alcohol available. The flight to Baghdad left early and was more than half empty so there was plenty of room to stretch out.

Good staff, the lack of alcohol contributed to a pleasant flight. Airbuses were a bit tired, but the new Boeing 737-800 was comfortable. Great value, nice service, and only slightly delayed.

CAI-BRU with an old A321 (10 Business seats). Business class might have been acceptable 20 yrs ago, but now it's a real disgrace. Out of date Business Class, no personal screen, no pillow, no amenity bag, two French newspapers, no English ones. Flight attendants tried to make the flight as comfortable as possible.

CAI-CPH. Flight was on time, the Aircraft was a new 737-800. Economy class, the service was very good, the staff patient considering the number of school students onboard. FA's tried patiently to control them and keep them seated. BER CAI. Station Manager was extremely friendly to everybody. Flew Business class, the flight was on time, seats were old fashioned but comfortable and functional, Video & Audio programs were excellent, food was good quality and FA's nice and interacting with passengers.

FRA-CAI. Check-in was very unorganized, waited 1 hr to be checked in. Lounge was nice but very crowded. They don't have Priority Boarding for Business Class passengers. The seat was very uncomfortable considering it was a business class seat - it doesnt become lie flat. There was PTV's but they were blurry and the control panel wasn't working and not very many choice of movies. The food was horrible - cold. The flight attendants hang out in the galley.

Flight from Cairo to Beijing. Old Business Class, the seats were not comfortable at all. The legroom was like in Economy. The First Class cabin also seemed to offer less comfort than Business normally does. Food was ok. The only advantage is the good value for money.

On my way to New York I had a stopover in Cairo. Ground staff were as polite and helpful as were the inflight staff. Confirmation that this hadn't just been my lucky day I had the same experience on my way back. My only moan was the music. If they could add a little bit of some laid back jazz.

Flew BKK-CAI-LHR return. Had new planes on all legs except last flight CAI-BKK. Flights were all more or less on time, cabin crew were friendly enough, food was mostly good. Older plane on last leg had no personal IFE, but as it was a night flight, we tried to sleep anyway, the food was not as good out of Cairo. The new planes were very nice, the toilets were large and very clean and the seats were comfortable. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised and would fly with Eygptair again if the price was right.

I flew 4 Egypt Air flights during my holidays to Egypt and Jordan. Most of the flights were about an hour long, with the longest being the flight from Jordan to Cairo. All the planes were new and food supplied looked decent. I had more of an issue with the passengers rather than the staff. Middle Eastern passengers tend to want to sit wherever they want so it is possible that someone will be sitting in your seat and the flight attendants will have to shuffle folks around so you can sit where you were supposed to. Middle Eastern male passengers tended to treat the female flight attendants with disdain and it took the male attendants to get everyone organised. Egyptair doesn't really follow restrictions for carry on luggage so unless you get on early, it is possible there will be nowhere to put your things, except under your seat, or way behind or in front of you.

Never again! Onboard Staff not very friendly or helpful in general, but that was not the half of it. When arriving at Johannesburg to check in for our return flight to London, we were informed our flight had been cancelled, and that the Friday flights had been non operational for months. Not once were we informed of this and when complaining were told they had sent us an e-mail a week prior to return departure! We were on holiday and in the African bush - unlikely to check e-mails on a daily basis! No one apologised, nor accepted responsibility for mistake and refused to try help us get home on time. Does Star Alliance not mean anything?

The worst service ever. I'm waiting for my refund (because of their cancellation) for more than 2 months now. It's really difficult - when I try to call them it takes more than 1 hour just to get connected or connected at all. I would not recommend this airline to anyone.

Cairo to London economy, codeshare with BMI. Not allowed to take airport bought water on board. Sat near the back of an older A321 and whole area had a terrible smell of urine. Seats very uncomfortable. Only 2 drinks served (very small cups of 7-up) during whole flight. Food disgusting and cabin staff not at all interested. No information at all from the flightdeck.

DAR-CAI-FRA-CPH. Small aircraft, good service, no alcohol. Check-in in Dar pleasant though complained could not check in my luggage beyond Copenhagen though with another Star Alliance airline. However, the airline granted me an untitled free lounge access in Dar instead, which was a fair deal. DAR-CAI on time, food served fast. The flight is only 4 hours at night. Thus, it was pleasant to see 2 sandwiches were instantly handed out upon departure as dinner, and then very shortly after came the breakfast. That rendered the options to sleep onboard to half an hour before descent or – to be waken up and have the breakfast in the middle of the night. Special meals taken care of. Missed my LH flight to Copenhagen as they had only granted 50 minutes. Was rebooked to a flight within 2 hours later. Arrived in CPH but had to go out of transit to capture my luggage for onward flights.

DXB-CAI-LHR as part of a reward ticket in Business Class. DXB excellent shared lounge with a few snacks, a few drinks and internet. Having read the reviews made sure I had some cereal, fruit and yoghurt at 4am before the flight and liberated a can of lager for lunch on the CAI-LHR sector. A substantial breakfast served, very tasty and one of the best airline meals I have had. Music choice poor but good range of films, seats comfortable and stretched out fully. Landed in Cairo about 20 mins late and what seemed a long way to the transfer desk. Here there was chaos, no real lines, people pushing in claiming leaving flights and although there was a Business Class desk this was dealing with what appeared to be everybody. Given an invite to the lounge after being asked if I wanted a smoking or non smoking lounge. I had intended to have a shower but lounge was busy and the flight being late and chaos at the transfer desk meant that there was only 45 mins there. Inflight entertainment was same as previous sector which was fine as I finished watched the film I fell asleep. Unnecessary stale cheese sandwich offered shortly after take off as well as great amenity kit. I have to say contents better than LH and LX business class kits - more useful contents. Fantastic lunch offering served 2 hours before landing at Heathrow with amazing in flight service. Landed on time and bags on carousel before me which is almost unheard of at LHR T3. Overall very good service, comfortable aircraft especially B777 from CAI to LHR. The only thing that let it down was the transfer process at DXB and CAI.

CPH-CAI-DAR return. Tickets heavily discounted, good value. Check in with automats in CPH airport waste of time as boarding cards and luggage tags are only provided. Special food good, 2 options for hot meal given on all routes for other passengers. No alcoholic drinks, free or for purchase. Quite disappointing for several passengers. A lot of soft drinks and juices provided. In Cairo a lot of waiting, taxi-ing, remote parking of aircraft within the airport caused 1 hour unnecessary arrival delay.

Flew out on A330 to Luxor - not good. We were in row 34. The entertainment was appalling, small screens over the centre could not be seen properly (3m away at an angle) and the choice of audio/music for Western ears was unbelievably bad. The pre-film entertainment seemed drivel and there was no choice of film of course. At meal time there was no choice, all the chicken was gone, fish only. "Would you like a drink sir?" "Yes please Orange juice." "Sorry no Orange juice." Seats seemed fine with good leg room. Return from Cairo in a Boeing 777-300 row 32. Individual back seat screens, not a wide choice of viewing but passable for 5 hrs. Audio/music unbelievably bad. Lunch time was handed a meal, "What is it?" "Fish." "No thank you." You have to have it, there is nothing else left!" Seats were good. Will never fly Egypt Air again.

Rome to Cairo and Cairo to London. Both flights were quite pleasant, meals were average economy standard meals. B737-800 from Rome and B777-300 to London. B777 had a more up to date inflight entertainment system, but I didn't find a lot that appealed to me. Newspapers (English and Arabic ) offered on both flights. The flight attendants were ok if somewhat distant. One in particular, on the London flight, was an expert in looking busy but actually doing very little. During the newspaper offering service her interpretation of service was pushing the trolley down the aisle past expectant passengers without glancing up at anyone as she was too busy reading the paper herself.

A mixed bag describes my recent experience on flights between Bangkok/Cairo and Cairo/JFK. As another writer recently bemoaned, the aircraft used on the Bangkok/Cairo sector was truly ancient. I do not honestly recall having riden an airliner that looked as worn as that used on this route. I too rode in Business Class yet felt like a sardine in coach class given the paltry amount of leg room available. A complete disaster was averted by fairly decent (but not great) meals and a hard working flight crew. The trip from Cairo/JFK was a totally different story. This time we were on a new 777 with lie flat seats. We had a very caring crew that kept on feeding us meal after meal. Both flights were relatively on time and both captains kept passengers reasonably informed.

LHR to JNB return. LHR to Cairo on new aircraft, clean, good inflight entertainment, staff very good and food not too bad. Cairo to JNB was on an older aircraft with the old TV on the wall, service was pretty good though. Would have preferred the newer planes on the longer leg of the journey. Return trip was the same JNB-CAI an older plane and CAI-LHR new plane! Expectations were too high in the first place so not bad at all.

BKK-CAI Business class. A terrible experience. Star Alliance standards? The flight was terrible, an extremely old 777 with economy class legroom and no proper recline. Only 21 seats and no service. I asked for juice and the empty glass was in the arm rest for only 8 hours. Not even once a cabin attendant asked if needed something. A third class breakfast was served. I cannot understand how Egypt air was accepted to Star Alliance with such a low standards.

BRU-CAI-SSH. Snow disruption. Flight delayed 3 hours. Snow can happen but we were boarded in the plane (old A321) even as MS knew the luggage handling was delayed for hours more. We were sitting in the plane for 2 more hours without any communication about the reason of the extra delay. Cup of water after more than 1.5 hrs and passengers complaints. Push-back with more than 5 hrs delay. Still no comment from crew. Pilot never addressed passengers during flight, safety demo aborted for take-off, crew unsmiling, inedible food. Arrival in CAI with big delay, connection to SSH was gone. Kept us waiting until 05.30 in the morning in the transit zone. Only then, they said us there was no seat on any flight for SSH during the day and that we had to go to hotel. We had to argue very strongly to get our boarding passes printed before we left for that hotel. They knew it already 99during the night, but wouldn't put us in hotel too early because they have to pay for extra night in the hotel. We only got voucher after asking for it. This is not the Egyptian hospitality I know. Shame on you Egypt Air.
